[Editor’s Note: Not sure if this is a great idea or not, but what the hell.]
We seem to have three new folks here at SEB, Ginjibar, Kristen, and Lisa4Catholics, all three bringing different viewpoints from the SEB norm. As shown in the Raving Atheist and Terry Schiavo blog discussions, there has been some good debate and some bad debate. The Terri Schiavo thread is still on-topic, but we need to stop polluting other threads with other crap. I know there was a thread on this before for people trying to convert us, but this is different; ginj and friends don’t appear to be evangelists. I am creating this post so that we can all have one place to talk to Ginj and his friends, instead of them stirring up controversy in unwanted places.
The rules are:
-First person to make a totally off-topic comment will be ignored after said comment
-Cite your sources; this is a debate
-Try to keep the number of times the words ‘Jesus’, ‘culture of life’, ‘Christian-hating’, and ‘anti-Christian liberals’ down to less than 15
The topic can be anything that is good discussion in terms of politics or religion, or maybe even pop culture (seeing how Les likes to blog about entertainment so much).
If a Christian becomes an atheist, the person who made the best argument wins a free 2 gb gmail account. If you already have one, well, sucks for you.
My opening statement: Terry Schiavo would have wanted to ‘officially’ die, Jesus loves you but he’s not in love with you.
